The drowsiness left over from last night's all-nighter may be cured with a strong dose of caffeine, but unfortunately, not even a shot of espresso can help clear those shadows from under your eyes. Since hiding behind your sunglasses is not exactly practical (and a dead giveaway when you're at work), your best bet is to conceal those circles.

You may be able to get away without foundation if you have good skin, but big-time beauty gurus like Bobbi Brown and Laura Mercier say concealer is a must. If you wear it right, you’ll look like you had a good night’s sleep; too much, and you’ll end up with raccoon eyes. Makeup artist Jason Au shows us how to apply this eye-brightening tool in three easy steps.


Browse through the gallery to learn how to hide those dark shadows and to check out FN's concealer picks.
